here it is, my mullberry selfELB ,havent measured the poundage yet, but its about 50 i guess, its a quick shooter!

profile, the wrapping on the limbs, is that 2 splinters raised on the top limb and i made it look even by by adding wrapping it on the bottom limb, still good shooter



handle wrap


strike plate , deer antler


horn nocks


mid limb - sapwood-heartwood


snaky limb, due to knots


Tiller

Good work!
How wide its at handle?
How thick are the tips?

I have even much more snakey piece of mullbery shaped into longbow for some time already, but I have removed all the sapwood.
